She is in great health, has not been declawed, but can be trusted to keep her scratching limited to her prized Cat Tree. She is as loving as can be and is a joy to have around the house.

My wife and I first saw Hammer 2 years ago as she was scurrying around our neighborhood scavenging for scraps. Soon, she began regularly appearing at our doorstep and after a week of seeing her as we arrived home from work, we began sitting down with her on our stoop. Her coat was in good condition for a stray but she was obviously underfed and very very hungry. She warmed up to us over the course of a few days and one day we took her in. We posted flyers all around the neighborhood with her photo, but nobody claimed her. Our gain. We have since loved this lovable beauty as a family member.

We had planned to take her home with us and keep her forever, but unfortunately a few things have happened and we are leaving under much different conditions than we would like. Without going into too many details, my wife's mother has a 3rd kind of cancer and lives with dogs that are, shall we say, untrained and unkind to other animals. We will be caring for mother, and between all that entails in addition to parenthood and multiple cross-country moves that are filled with uncertainty, we need to find Hammer a loving home here with the emotional and physical space to give her what she needs.

So, please please please, if you or anyone else you know are interested in giving love to this sweetheart and are in a position to give her the stability she needs, please contact me and we can discuss if it is a good fit or not.

Hi, I was wondering if Hammer has found a home or not? we would be willing to look after her forever. I sent an email but no one has replied....?^^

Oh apologies, this profile is under my user name as I created it for another member. He updated on ARK's Facebook that, yes, Hammer did find a home. But I failed to update her profile. Thank you for asking about her and pointing this out. I will move her to "Adopted" right now! The contact listed are Hammer's former family's emails, and I am sure they are just busy as they were moving & this was the reason for Hammer's rehoming and may explain why there has not been a response there.

However, Leighlee, if you are interested in adopting a kitty, may I offer that KAPS has many amazing cats and kittens at our Daegu shelter. We also currently have two beautiful cats in foster care. If you are interested in either of these two, please email KAPS-Boeun (at) hotmail.co.uk.

Please know though that there are of course also many, many other beautiful kitties in need of a forever home right here on ARK from shelters and foster homes across Korea! - as I am sure you are aware, since you are searching ^^ A particular case in urgent need that I know of is Snowflake, a gorgeous white kitty in foster care.

Please know though Hammer has found her home, you are sure to find another kitty who will be a great match for you. Please also know that it is kitten season. (But since you commented on Hammer, perhaps you are looking for an adult cat... which is great and many adult cats are also widely available.) Please feel free to comment here or email me at KAPS.Adoption (at) gmail.com if you need or would like assistance in your search. I wish you all the best looking for your perfect kitty match!

Ok, thanks for that. We were looking to adopt 2 cats together, so we will have another look. We live in Paju and Daejeon is too far to go... Though I did see all those gorgeous kitties that I would love to have!!!
Thank you for your message^^
